Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Best/Worst Jefferson Hairbrained Song Ever

Give them credit, Jefferson Airplane had a sense of humor to call their first anthology LP,
"THE WORST OF JEFFERSON AIRPLANE".

Ironically, of course, the Airplane had some really awful "songs" that were left off the "worst" collection... which would have been funny had a few been included to show they could laugh at themselves.

I think the Airplane were aware of their tendency to over indulge their creative egos, and that they really did have some of the "worst" drek in their repetoire especially on those later JA albums like Bark.

They could still be great live but when they played at odds with each other their sets were shrill, and stunk up the stage... PHEW!
Take a look at the Behind The Scenes meltdown with Grace almost inciting the entire audience to walkout at a concert in Germany - though the audience was initially leaving in droves, many decided to stay and watch the Starship crash and burn...

Is there a way to watch that whole debacle, taped for TV but never shown unedited?
